Libertarian has both conservative and democratic principals all wrapped up in one sweet little package. Sadly no true libertarian exists. Ron Paul turned out to be a religious kook who's libertarian streak got muddied by what he thinks his God approves of. Your group of intelligent people are all for taxes of some sort, national healthcare and they'd like to see generous subsidies in science and drug research so how libertarian are they? That link was posted in 2000 and an election was near and they ranked the candidates by who they thought was smartest. Their top 4 (not named were eliminated from the race) and the 5th was Al Gore. Dead last was obviously that retard George Bush who I doubt they voted for.

@madest: "They would eliminate subsidies"

This is known as fiscal conservatism.

@madest: I'm a libertarian you fool; I've stated it many times.

Also, I never said anything about Republicans or Democrats - merely conservative beliefs and liberal beliefs.

In addition, the link you've provided is evidence, not proof, although I have already agreed with it's findings when I said this: "Many studies show that people with fiscally conservative viewpoints are, in fact, more intelligent that they're liberally-minded counterparts. On the other hand, studies also show that the social conservatives tend to be less intelligent." This would be one of those "many studies" I've alluded to.

I can tell you're a liberal, because once your point in dissolved, you simply latch onto something else.

@Solvent It's depressing that you're too simple to get even racial stereotypes correct. The British aren't renowned for giving up the ghost.

@DromEd "Weak sauce madest. One...the report didn't even include Mitt's comments, just the reaction of toffy nosed Brits."

Your spelling belies the fact you are somewhat lacking on the cogent political debate front. If our Leader of the Opposition had gone over to Alanta and said "Ooh, I don't know if this is going to be a decent Games" there'd have been an excremental storm. I think calling the reaction toffy (sic) nose is an act of gross ignorance, or at best gross distortion.

"Has any city ever received long term benefit from hosting them."

Lillehammer and Barcelona did just fine. Where the Olympic site is in London was an industrial wasteland surrounded by marsh. It now has a massive shopping centre, great venues, good infrastructure and better transport.

OK well "Fiscal conservatism" doesn't represent any republicans in our government. You're guild of genius's are libertarian not conservative. They would eliminate subsidies. The house voted along party lines to keep subsidies for oil companies. Perhaps they're democrat or you're democrat and you think yourself too smart to know it. Here's proof about the intelligence of your social conservative couterparts. The dumb people like your party. Be proud.

Obama's gaffes were mush worse than Romney's, but the socialist British press deliberately downplayed Obama's insults and have played Romney's statements to the max. For instance, when Obama returned the bust of Chirchill, when he gave the Queen an iPod with his speeches, when he gave the prime minister a set of DVDs that can't be played on a British DVD player, when Michelle put her hand on the Queen, etc. In all these cases, the British press made excuses for Obama, but when Romney questions whether the Brits are fully prepared for the Olympics -- something he knows just a little bit about, and something MANY other Brits have questioned as well -- the left-wing @$$holes start flinging their turds like disgruntled chimps.

HolyGod-"A Pew Research Center study found.."

The National Election Studies (NES) database demonstrates that Republicans are more likely to have a 4-year college degree (for males 35% vs. 22%, females 27% vs 20%).

The same database found the Republicans tend to be more successful.

A democrat is twice as likely to be receiving food stamps (10.4% vs. 5.1%) and more than twice as likely to receive food stamps (23% vs. 10%).

Source: Democrats and Republicans--rhetoric and reality. By Joseph Fried.

"The entire 'liberals are more intelligent' bull has been debunked repeatedly"

For the 4th (I think) time on this thread I will say: Educated and Informed does not mean intelligent. I never made a statement that liberals are smarter.

You argue the highly educated thing?

"A Pew Research Center study found that liberals were the most educated ideological demographic and were tied with the conservative sub-group, the "Enterprisers", for the most affluent group. Of those who identified as liberal, 49% were college graduates and 41% had household incomes exceeding $75,000, compared to 27% and 28% as the national average, respectively. Liberalism has become the dominant political ideology in academia, with 44-62% identifying as liberal"

"Highly educated people tend to work in REAL jobs."

What is a "real" job? What do you do?

@madest: Actually, you're comment was so ridiculous that I have to keep going. There's no other option here.

There are approximately 980 people in this society. They represent the intellectual elite (top 0.1% of IQs). This is statistically significant.

As for you comment, let's see...

Weed Legalization, fiscal in nature? Nope.
Prostitution Legalization, fiscal in nature? No again...

So let's define the word fiscal for all the madest's out there:

Fiscal [fis-kuhl] - adjective
1. of or pertaining to the public treasury or revenues: fiscal policies.
2. of or pertaining to financial matters in general.

You're not helping your liberal friends. Best to leave the conversation to adults.

@madest: "pro weed legalization, pro prostitution legalization"

Not a single one of those has any thing to do with anything fiscal. Do you know what fiscal means? Or are you purposefully being stupid?

Please. That's not a study. That's what 9 intelligent people think. In fact they fall more in line with my ideals than any conservative ideals. They are pro weed legalization, pro prostitution legalization. How did you expect to impart that as empirical evidence of fiscal conservative genius?

@HolyGod: That's fair enough - I too consider myself a libertarian; I suppose it would be rather unrealistic to have someone who opposes large government spending (fiscal), but supports morally/religiously-motivated national laws.

Perhaps this is partially to blame for the recent emergence of the libertarian party?

That being said, I did clearly state "fiscally conservative viewpoints" instead of fiscal conservative in my last argument.

@madest: Ask and you shall receive - Intellectual Elite Are Fiscally Conservative. This society allows only those who score in the top 0.1% of IQs.

HolyGod-"Highly educated and highly informed people tend to be liberal."

Nope, they are just under the delusion that they are 'enlightened'. The entire 'liberals are more intelligent' bull has been debunked repeatedly.

HolyGod-"Highly educated and highly informed people tend to work in News and broadcasting."

Annnd you heard that on a News report...right? ("Hey! WE'RE SMART!!! Film at eleven.")

Highly educated people tend to work in REAL jobs. People with barely the ability to read a teleprompter work in News and broadcasting.

If you have ever used the term 'm'kay' then you should punch ourself in the face repeatedly. And don't hold back, give it some welly. If you have used it while thinking it makes you sound like Bill Hicks, then take something pointed and jab it into somewhere soft and painful until you understand.

I voted for Bush the first time. I grew up conservative and identified as one. "Fiscal conservatives" don't exist. I agree that it used to be a platform, but it is only a talking point now. conservatives are only fiscally conservative when a democrat is in the white house. Look at government spending and federal deficit when republicans are president.

I consider myself a libertarian.

@HolyGod: Ah, perhaps I was not specific enough then. Let's divide Conservatives into two groups for the sake of argument: Social Conservatives (typically religious ones) and Fiscal Conservatives (typically the smart ones).

Many studies show that people with fiscally conservative viewpoints are, in fact, more intelligent that they're liberally-minded counterparts. On the other hand, studies also show that the social conservatives tend to be less intelligent.

Unfortunately, a large percentage of the conservative base is conservative for religious or social reasons, and this skews the overall group statistic.

The answer is quite simple really - libertarians are smarter than liberals AND conservatives !

I never said anything about intelligence. I said knowledgeable. You almost certainly can't name the syrian ambassador to israel's name. I can't. But the guy who interviewed him can.

Not that I really care what you think, but I worked for the largest Newspaper publisher in the country for 5 years.

By the way, when people say things like "ROTFLMFAO" and "M'kay" I find it incredibly hard to take them in any way seriously. It certainly cripples whatever point you seem to think you are making. You're almost 50, put on your big boy pants and talk like an adult if you'd like to have an adult conversation.

Romney is clearly an idiot. Nice to see him proving it in front of so many cameras.

Oh, and all you Romney-bots kissing his ass?

He'll still throw you under the train if he gets the chance. Dumbasses.

Well Dromed, My right-wing-Rush-Limbaugh-wannabe-friend. We're just realists. What ideas are coming out of your party that will benefit anybody other than the top earners? If I understand the republican platform as it exists today they want to go to war with Iran, repeal DADT, stop funding planned parenthood, cut government employee salaries, round up illegals and force them to self deport, increase oil subsidies, let Wall street do as they please by lifting restrictions (whatever that means), cut taxes for the rich, repeal national healthcare and replace medicare with vouchers. And I'm pretty sure they have an eye on ending social security. So what is it about them you like so much? I don't see the appeal there, go ahead call me crazy..

You guys have clearly never worked in broadcasting and brought people the news. I have M'Kay. They're just average people like any other profession. What I question is your intelligence for making such an idiotic blanket statement. You two are two of the biggest know-it-all clowns on this site.
